Earlier this afternoon, the Sacramento Kings announced their 4th pre-draft workout, set to take place on June 15th, along with an official release of the list of prospects expected to attend.
Zachary Auguste (F – 6’10" 242 lbs.) Notre Dame
Egidijus Mockevicius (C – 6’10" 225 lbs.) Evansville
Wade Baldwin (G – 6’4" 202 lbs.) Vanderbilt
Antwan Scott (G – 6’2" 178 lbs.) Colorado State
Eric McClellan (G – 6’4" 196 lbs.) Gonzaga
Fred VanVleet (G – 6’0" 195 lbs.) Wichita State
Vanderbilt point guard Wade Baldwin is a noteworthy attendee. He'll be the highest ranking prospect the Kings have brought in to this point, coming in at 18th on Chad Ford's top-100, and has been receiving repeated praise for his previous workouts around the league. Considering Rajon Rondo and Seth Curry's free agency, along with Darren Collison's potential legal trouble, the Kings could use some serious point guard help this season, and Wade Baldwin is one of the better point guard prospects in this draft.
Wichita State's Fred VanVleet is another top-100 prospect according to Ford, coming in #60 which is fairly high relative to the level of prospects the Kings have scouted thus far.
Notre Dame's Zachary Auguste came in at #86, and Evansville's Egidijus Mockevicius came in at #95 to round out the attendees ranked on Ford's big board.
The 2016 NBA Draft in just 9 days away, and regardless of your opinion of the importance of any of the NBA's pre-draft nonsense, it is a little alarming just how few useful workouts the Kings have hosted thus far. Hopefully tomorrow's workout headlined by Wade Baldwin is a sign of things to come before June 23rd.
